Just under 7" of paste on the ground here and still snowing.  This has been a great NWF event. 

I've got about 6 here with light snow. Temps have actually risen the past couple of hours and the wind has dramatically picked up. Just had a gust of 48. And you're right, this stuff is sloppy. There's a lot of mud underneath it here. I had 2.3 inches of rain before the changeover. But snow around Christmas is always nice.

Definitely an elevation dependent snow. Went out for dinner and there's nothing below 3000k in Yancey. I have no idea how that magical 3500 feet line was set but it's always pretty much spot on. Sometimes you can see a straight across snowline on a ridge and it'll be close to that.

Yep right about 3000 plus is when you get snow on the ground. Still snowing here. So beautiful right before Christmas.

Well it's kinda boring in Boone tbh. I dont believe its actually below freezing yet so no snow on the roads.

We are at just a bit above 3600' and it's snowing and everything is covered ATM...Our dirt road is covered as well.  Not sure how it is going down the hill in Boone.

Coming down Scronce Creek.you could see this really well.  There was nothing until I reached the gap.  And then once I reached 4kft in my neighborhood the accumulationchanged dramatically.

 

I just measured 8-9" in several spots, 8.75" on my board.  Tomorrow night is gonna be great...a full moon is gonna make for some awesome photos.
